I'm really excited about the upcoming new album from M.I.A. Her music is not at all the type of stuff I ordinarily listen to. It's a mix of hip-hop, dance, world music, and political sloganeering. I find it absolutely infectious. Maya (M.I.A.) is originally from Sri Lanka, but she grew up in London. This seems to give her something of an otherwordly sound. It is some of the most unique sounding music I've ever heard. A bunch of new M.I.A. songs have been leaking over the internet, and she has made videos for two of them. Here is the video for "Bird Flu." I cannot stop listening to this song!
